• St. Charles Seminary Appeal

    “Through your support of the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary Appeal, you are participating in a critical mission within the Church. Without the priest, we would not have the Eucharist. Without our Deacons, Catechists and other lay leaders, our missionary outreach would lose its vitality. Your contributions are not only a gift to the seminary but also a gift to the entire Church! And as part of the Church, we are all called to proclaim the beautiful and hopeful message of Christ. Thank you for your “yes”!”

    Father Keith Chylinski, Rector,
    Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary

  • The Eucharist and the Real Presence of Christ

    Catholic Church teaches the sacrament of the Eucharist is the Real Presence of Jesus Christ. The Blessed Sacrament is when the bread and wine truly become the body, blood soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. The process by which this happens is called transubstantiation. The Eucharist is not a symbol of Jesus. It is Jesus. This is a central teaching of the Catholic Church, and many no longer believe! A recent Pew Research Center survey reported that approximately 70% of Catholics DO NOT believe what the Church teaches regarding the Blessed Sacrament. In this video, Catholic Speaker Ken Yasinski talks about the Real Presence and goes over 4 ways to prepare our hearts before receiving the Eucharist.
